i think it’s true
some wrinkled old man, likely been screwed
whose heart was broken
one day decided that love was mistaken
sat down and wrote a piece of essay
explaining that it is wrong to make lovers stay
‘you need to love by not needing to love
because do it any other way it will turn into a rope.’

and ever since
we get forever caught
in this catch-22 paradox
leaving room for no ad hoc
keeps us driving round and round
waiting for chances as irrelevant as every lost-and-found
at airports.
